This book is very vulnerable and real. Jamie Ivey shares her struggles and past cycle of getting caught in sin patterns she didn’t want to choose, but would find herself choosing anyway.
The book’s byline is, “My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story of Becoming Free.” Through her story and life she’s learned to be a safe place for other’s to share their stories and pain and pits. She helps others because of the road she’s walked.
Jamie has learned to battle guilt and fear and fight against the letters she’d label herself with. She’s learned to stop trying to forgive herself and accept the forgiveness Jesus has provided for her……….and for all of us.
She shares her story, not to say, “Look at me,” but to say “Look at Him and what He’s done for me.” And most of all to say, “Jesus is better!”
I am deeply grateful for stories and for lessons I can learn from reading other people’s stories.
If you appreciate real and gritty stories and you want a refresher on banishing shame and guilt, I think this book would be one you want to add to your to-read list.
